In today’s fast paced society, we sometimes lose connection to the simple healing power of being held, nurtured and accepted unconditionally. Being held, within the warm, weightless quality of water can be a powerfully healing process, connecting us to the unconscious experience we once had cradled safely in the womb.
During a session, you are supported and guided, through a series of opening and releasing movements. which gently unwind tight muscles and promote expanded articulation of the spine.
The held, nurturing space above the waters surface and guided movements below, allow the body to yield and move with a freedom and grace unattainable on land. This is an invitation for you to surrender, both physically and emotionally, whilst the mind relaxes into a deeply meditative and timeless space.
What about the water going up my nose?
The receiver wears a nose clip so they don't need to worry about this happening
I am not very comfortable in the water and a bit scared of going under, do I have to?
Each session is given with sensitivity to the needs of the receiver. Establishing a feeling of safety and trust with the receiver is paramount...When working with someone for the first time, very clear signals are given to the receiver so they have time to take a breath and prepare for being submerged. The first submersion will only last a few seconds and is gradually built up through the session. If the receiver is not comfortable during any point of this process and only wants to continue above the water, this is fine too.
Do I need to do anything to prepare?
Try not to eat anything an hour beforehand, or if you must, make it a light meal
Are there any medical conditions that are not safe to do this with?
People with heart conditions should consult with their doctor first before receiving a session.
If you have any chronic pain in your body make sure you make the practitioner aware before the beginning of the session.
